GREENVILLE, S.C., Sept. 21, 2023 – The Michelin X One Line Energy D2 Pre-Mold retread tire is Michelin’s lowest rolling resistance heavy truck drive retread to date. Created for long-haul transportation, it is designed to deliver industry-leading fuel savings to lower the total cost of ownership, while providing exceptional traction for driver confidence.
“The Michelin X One Line Energy D2 Pre-Mold’s new ultra-low rolling resistance levels are designed to exceed SmartWay® and CARB requirements,” said Pierluigi Cumo, B2B VP of Marketing for Michelin North America, Inc. “It’s compact tread design, with less flexibility in the tire tread between the tread surface and tire carcass, provides better energy conservation for greater fuel efficiency.”
The Michelin X One Line Energy D2 Pre-Mold tire is designed to optimize the total cost of ownership by improving rolling resistance, improving mileage performance and providing improved resistence to irregular wear for long tread life.
“With it’s Regenion evolving tread design, the Michelin X One Line Energy D2 Pre-Mold tire provides stability in all weather conditions, even when worn, which is critical to long-haul drivers,” Cumo said.
For the harsh winter season, Michelin is rolling out the Michelin X One XDS 2 Pre-Mold tire. Designed for extreme winter conditions to promote driver confidence and security, the Michelin X One XDS Pre-Mold tire capitalizes on weight savings of the new generation wide-based tire by adding a significant traction retread offer.
“The Michelin X One XDS2 Pre-Mold offers the same legendary snow traction as the Michelin XDS2+ Pre-Mold tire, with it’s potential weight savings, offering 365 lbs. more payload than dual tires,” Cumo said. “This tire is designed to take on the harshest winters and get drivers and their cargo to their destination safely.”
Designed with driver confidence in mind and optimized traction for snow, the Michelin X One XDS2 recap is specifically made to tame the Canadian winters’ cold weather environments, and is available as a retread only.
